Palehose Batter Athletics 9 - 1

May 19, 1967 @ Municipal Stadium Kansas City

12,735 in attendance witnessed the Chicago White Sox bang out 13 hits and defeat the Kansas City Athletics 9 - 1. The White Sox entire starting lineup had at least one base hit with Tommie Agee, Jerry Adair and Don Buford each having two hits. The Sox scored two runs in the second inning and rallied for four more in the sixth to provide plenty of cushion for starting pitcher Gary Peters (5-1) who tossed a comlete game 7 hitter, striking out 8 A's.

Peters and Buford put the White Sox on the board in the second with rbi hits. Ken Berry had two rbi's on the day, while Agee, J. C. Martin and Jerry Adair each had one rbi. Pete Ward stole his 2nd base of the year, and Tommie Agee added 3 more steals giving him 13 for the season. Athletics Lew Krausse (2-5) absorbed the loss. The 1st place White Sox are now 20-8.

  1. Thanks for this great post. I love the two photos, especially the image of Peters in motion. You have great resources. Great game with Don Buford hitting two triples (he hit nine for the year).
